FEMMES (Females Excelling More in Mathematics, Engineering and Science) Looking for Volunteers

Saturday, November 16, 9:00 a.m.-3 p.m.

FEMMES (Females Excelling More in Mathematics, Engineering and Science) is an educational outreach organization that seeks to inspire young girls to gain interest in the STEM fields. Our first event will be held on Saturday, November 16th from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., and it is a day-long Capstone event in which approximately 100-120, 4th-6th grade girls from Ann Arbor, Ypsilanti, Dexter, and the metro Detroit area will spend the day with UM professors, faculty, and students. The girls will engage in hands-on science activities hosted by different faculty and student organizations (4 different activities, each lasting 45 minutes, with a light breakfast and lunch, included).

We would love for you to volunteer as a group leader for the FEMMES Capstone Event! Group Leaders lead a group of 10-12 girls through the various faculty-led activities. We are looking for enthusiastic, inspiring students to help share their passion for science and learning to these girls. As a volunteer Group Leader, you are required to attend one mandatory training session held during the two weeks prior to the event. If you don't think that you will be able to commit to the time frame of the capstone event, we are also looking for volunteers to help with set-up, lunch/breakfast monitoring, and pick-up/drop-off at the beginning and end of the event.

Please e-mail us back ( if you are interested in volunteering for FEMMES. We look forward to meeting you all and getting together a great group of volunteers!
